Victoria Derbyshire | Is Free Speech At British Universities Under Threat?


On Monday 25 April, I took part in the Victoria Derbyshire show for a discussion about free speech in British universities. Given that the show tried to cover the inner workings of NUS politics, the ad-hoc activism of unofficial no-platforming, the history of the anti-fascist movement on campuses, and free speech as an abstract principle, it all seemed rather overstuffed even at two hours; but I got to sit next to Julie Bindel and Peter Tatchell as though I’m someone who actually does things, which was nice.
